1. First, get your copy of the the latest version of the ISO 9001:2008 standard.
2. Next, understand what the standard is and how it works.
The book ISO 9001:2008 Explained, Third Edition was written by three U.S. experts who worked on the standard at the international level. Each chapter in the book is organized by the different standard requirements and contains the actual ISO 9001:2008 language, followed by an explanation of the intent of each clause.
3. Finally, consult with a third-party registrar/auditor who can answer more specific questions.
Read a closed discussion from the "Ask a Quality Professional" archives: "When should you bring an ISO registrar on board?"
ASQ offers many other ISO 9000-related resources, and members receive discounts on most products, including books related to standards. Membership also gives you access to a network of other professionals who may be able to help answer questions you may have.
